Lures For Display

12 posts in this topic

I made a few lures that are intended for display only. Was wondering if anyone would share their ideas or experiences on different display cases they have used or neat ways of displaying finished lures.

Thanks.

Don't know where you get them but I like the little clear Lucite stands that have 2 Vee's cut in them to position the lure upright with the trebles hanging. Maybe someone that uses them can suggest a source?

For display I use either a wooden box with a sliding glass top or place the bait in a bottle. Hobby Lobby and Michaels have all sorts of glass bottles and jars, just select a size you need and turn or cut a lid to fit. Here is what mine look like.

Try www.oldlure.com. I've used his stands for years at trade shows a could have sold a ton of stands. Can you believe, I'd pay those rediculous entry fees to attend a trade show and people wanted the stands, not my baits! I think his name is Matt and his mother is the woman who designed my websites. All pure coincidence!

Do a search for lure stands on eBay and it should turn up some of those lucite stands. I've seen some made of bent wire that are pretty neat to. With the wire ones you don't notice the stand so much. Don't have a pic but one could experiment with some wire and come up with something that would work.

Whittler, that lure in a bottle idea is the coolest display I've seen lately! Cool idea for sure!

I have made my own design to use at my dealer's store. He likes it and it gives him some flexibility. I also intend to make one for myself for displaying my personal favorites. If anyone would like to see a drawing of mine, I would be more than happy to share it. It is easy to build and looks very attractive when done. I may even be willing to make one and ship it locally for a cost of course. Got to pay for the materials and 'some' of my time you know. Not sure what I would have to have for one but I am sure I can do it at a fair price. I wish I had a picture of this but I don't have it here now. The drawing should give you a good idea of how it would look.

Moderator Note: I hope that I don't get spanked for this post...I am not trying to make money on this site. Just trying to help the others where I can. Please feel free to delete this or any portion of this post if you need to.

You can get them on ebay. They have auctions where you can get 50 or 100

Here is what I use to display my baits in my shops. I choose to not do packaging and to use the display case as a show piece. I have a buddy that builds furniture to make them for me :). It weighs about 5lbs or so and ships easily.

Scroll down to the very bottom left hand picture. I tried to post the actual picture on here but I got a little red x???
